29) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Smiths-'Meat Is Murder'
The second album I bought from this great Manchester band. It's not their best album, but they really didn't have any bad material. This is one bad ass album. This collection may be their most cohesive album, start to finish. It has a consistent sound, and maybe only the self-titled debut could come close to it in that catagory. This is also the first complete album I heard produced by the great Stephen Street. It obviously wouldn't be the last. Dedicated to the late John Peel, who even after knowing The Smiths for over ten years, made me appreciate them even more. I have to agree they are not only one of the most talented bands of the 80's, but one of the funniest as well. "I am the son and the heir, of a shyness that is criminally vulgar."
30) James-"Sayonara" From the CD 'Wah-Wah'.
